To support the commercialization of DOST-generated technologies aimed at strengthening the country’s intellectual property (IP) and technology portfolios, the Technology Application and Promotion Institute of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST-TAPI) conducted several training sessions on Freedom to Operate (FTO).
FTO is a due diligence process undertaken by IP rights owners to identify potential risks of infringing activity or patent barriers in commercialization.
